The colored edges make the invitation really pop!

Today we wanted to post wedding invitations that we printed for a great couple, Francesca & Robert, a while back. Pulling samples yesterday for a slew of new customers, we stumbled across these invites and loved how great the edge coloring looked on them. Their invites were based on our Feathered Flourishes wedding invitation suite. More photos of these wedding invitations after the break.

The invitation was letterpress printed on our 220lb 100% cotton stock (~0.05″ thick!) in two-colors. The flourishes were printed in blue and green to match the envelope and liner. Green is also used as an accent in the ampersand between their names on the invite. The invitations were a traditional size – A7 (5″ x 7″) – and were round cornered using a 1/2″ radius die.

The final touch for these invitations was the edge coloring done in the same green to match the letterpress ink and envelopes. For couples that are interested in using edge coloring for their wedding suite, we suggest the 220lb stock as the thickness of the paper provides a nice “shelf” to display the color.

This project was one of the first pieces we printed on our newly acquired 12 x 18 Chandler & Price Craftsman press. Four form rollers plus more than a ton in weight means this bad boy can print nice solids with a deep impression!

The last piece to the set was the envelope. It was letterpress printed with their address on the flap and then lined with this graphic print in blue.

We love wedding invitations not only because of what they represent, but also because they’re like mini-posters! Whether your interested in one of our designs or have a design of your own, to get started on your wedding project get in touch with us by phone or email.
